    After I transitioned, he didn't say one word to me for the next 8 years I was there.  He would change the direction he was walking rather than encounter me.

    Teacher's Lounge opens every Saturday between 11 am and noon. It's not just for teachers.

      Jerk! Although I suspect there were a lot more people Win hated than liked. I know the word up here was always "if you see Win Thompson coming toward you with a smile and an outstretched hand, keep your back to the wall and your hand on your wallet."

      The place has certainly changed a lot since then -- at least double in size. I doubt Lu is any more inclusive -- unless you have money, that is. He is 100% politician.

      This is the opening and closing grafs from the lead editorial in the Dem-Gazette one Sunday after Win Thompson left UCA:

      Now that Winfred Thompson has left the presidency of the University of Central Arkansas and is no longer in a position to make the lives of its faculty a Living Hell, the most embarrassing administration in the state’s duplicative, disorganized, and sprawling system of higher education is... (the envelope, please)... by popular and surely unanimous agreement... the one headed by ... LES WYATT! His administration of Arkansas State University takes this booby prize....

      P.S. Whatever happened to Winfred Thompson, anyway? We hear he's gone from UCA to become president of a university in the United Arab Emirates – J. William Fulbright's old stomping grounds. How appropriate. At last Win Thompson has found the kind of society into which his administrative ways should fit perfectly: a feudal monarchy.
